Muhammad Ali Jinnah

For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been'.
John Greenleaf Whittier
The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
No pen can give an adequate description of the all-pervading corruption produced by slavery.
Harriet Ann Jacobs

New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.

Only dreams give birth to change.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Do you think I am standing here, making this up as I go? I am sorry to disillusion you. I am not Robin Williams. I am the king of the pen.
